Create a Workspace

Your RIDE Server journey starts with creating a new workspace for your project. You can create a new workspace from sidebar menu or from dashboard. 

You need to:

  1. Define a name
  2. Select an organization
  3. Select your stack
  4. Allocate the amount of memory you need
  5. Create

It usually takes 15-20 seconds to start your workspace. If it is the first time that you are pulling a new stack in the RIDE Server or a new version of the image is released, it may take up to 3-4 minutes to start your workspace for the first time and about 15-20 seconds afterward.

Stopping / Starting workspace

From the sidebar menu or workspace dahsboard, you can stop /start your workspace anytime that you would like. You can have multiple workspaces running at the same time (depends on your organization settings) and switch between them. 

Default idle time is 10 hours. It means that if there is no user interaction with IDE for 10 hours, workspace stops automatically. RIDE Server admin is able to set different idle time by changing the value of CODENVY_MACHINE_WS_AGENT_INACTIVE_STOP_TIMEOUT_MS (in ms) inside codenvy.env and restarting RIDE Server.
